An Explosion of Colours
In terms of design and style, Paint is many things. Bold, cartoonish, colourful and perky, the reels are set against a rainbow-painted wall on the street, with spray paint cans lying on the side. The command bar is the usual discreet and sleek set of buttons packed at the bottom of the game screen.
Each reel is actually freshly painted in a different colour, with drops of green, yellow, orange and more scattered all around. A true creative explosion and a welcome change from the usual monochromatic backgrounds that you might be used to by now.
Time to Make Some Art
Paint lets you bet from 0.20 to 100 credits on its 5 reels and 20 paylines, which are fixed. The only choice you have to make is the size of your next wager before you spin the reels and get the game started. Feel free to play either turn by turn or through the autospin game mode to speed up the process a little bit. As mentioned before, Paint has a low volatility that makes cash prizes quite frequent – but big wins a little tougher to get.
The paytable features card icons, bottles of paint, brushes and more art-related and original reel symbols. The largest possible payout in the base game is worth 2,000 times your current line bet. It might be tough to win that much in Paint at once, but the game has a few extras that you can take advantage of – just like we did when we tested the game, and our chances to hit the jackpot suddenly started to grow.
Pop the Balloons
Paint is quite generous when it comes to bonus features, and it all starts with a tiny colour whirl that plays the part of the wild card, available anywhere on the reels to replace basic symbols.
Then we have a whole array of tiny paint stains, each of them with a special effect. The yellow one appears only on reel 3 and awards one free spin. Repeat at will to make the free spin bonus last longer. The other colour stains appear on different reels and award up to 50 extra credits, with a win multiplier of x5.
Finally, 3 or more bonus symbols on the reels initiate the balloon bonus. Pop up the balloons that appear on the screen on top of the reels to win extra cash prizes and multipliers. This simple game becomes addictive quite quickly, and it was quite exciting to be able to explode balloons full of paint to unlock more cash.
Big, Bright and Colourful
Paint is a game worth trying because of its low-volatility and easy gameplay. Free spins will come slowly, one by one at first, but you have good chances to keep on triggering them throughout the game and that will give you so many more occasions to win a big cash prize.
With its eye-catching theme and original graphics, Paint ends up besting Ka-Boom from Merkur in basically every category. If you are looking for a slot game with a street art vibe, we highly recommend that you give this 1×2 Gaming creation a try.
